I really wanted to choose something badass for The Darkest Minds - because Ruby is super cool and strong - this is why I went with this leather pencil skirt and those kickass ankle boots. I knew that I needed to include orange/yellow - preferably the same shade as seen on the cover - so I added that simple crop top with the black necklace and earrings that make it more interesting. Finally, I included this blazer with just a touch of leather in it that's a perfect match for the skirt and hides the shine of the top. I really needed to somehow shade that bright color because I felt like it didn't exactly fit the novel's overall atmosphere.
On a final note, The Darkest Minds is one of the best dystopian books I've ever read and I'd recommend it to anyone who's a fan of the genre, maybe even to those who are tired of the same dystopian stories again and again.
Hope you enjoyed! Tell me, what would you do differently?
